Commissioned by the BBC, and described by Dylan Thomas as 'a play
for voices', UNDER MILK WOOD takes the form of an emotive and
hilarious account of a spring day in the fictional Welsh seaside
village of Llareggub. We learn of the inhabitants' dreams and
desires, their loves and regrets. The play introduces us to
characters such as Captain Cat who dreams of his drowned former
seafellows and Nogood Boyo who dreams of nothing at all. It is a
unique and touching depiction of a village that has 'fallen head
over bells in love'. The First Voice narration reveals the ordinary
world of daily happenings and events, while the Second Voice
conveys the intimate, innermost thoughts of the fascinating folk of
Llareggub. There have been myriad productions of UNDER MILK WOOD
over the years and Richard Burton, Peter O'Toole, Elizabeth Taylor,
Sir Anthony Hopkins and Tom Jones have all starred in radio, stage
or film adaptations. Dylan Thomas's classic radio play reprinted to
celebrate the centenary of his birth. A true masterpiece that has
never been out of print.
